December 2021

In 2021, we developed the Ākina Te Tū Kaupapa Māori Research Fund to support further engagement and capability development for our tangata whenua partners across the Resilience Challenge.

In the inaugural round of the fund, we have provided $158,460 to ten projects across the Challenge.

The panel (Dr Jessica Hutchings, Dr Acushla Dee Sciascia and Josh Te Kani) were impressed with the vibrant scope of work happening across the Challenge and the high standard of applications.

The fund supports the Challenge’s Strategic Priority Area Two: Stronger Partnerships with Māori, through supporting the growth and development of tangata whenua capability and capacity and further our goal to leave a lasting legacy in the research sector and in our community.
